Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "Very Funny and Entertaining"

    I love Mindy Kaling, and her book did not disappoint. She provided great stories told in a witty, sassy way.

    I was a little disappointed that the book didn't come with a .pdf so that we could view the photos that are included in the hardcover book. Tina Fey's book had a .pdf that could be downloaded through audible. I feel like I'm missing out on fun Mindy Kaling photos.

    Overall though, a very entertaining and quick listen. I work from a home office by myself so it's always nice to have friendly and fun voices in the background. I look forward to Mindy's next book.

    "Light and Fun"

    I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with this. It's really easy listen and like Mindy said if you're listening to this for months something is wrong. I've already listened to it twice and will probably listen to it again. I really enjoyed this, and look forward to Mindy's next book!

    "Hilar. Love her."

    Mindy would be my friend if I knew her. I guess that would make me Mavis. No, wait, I'd be the Mindy and she'd have to be the Mavis!

    "Just in time"

    I recently finished "Bossypants" by Tina Fey and "I Know I Am But What Are You?" by Samantha Bee. My library was in need of a witty memoir, and Mindy Kaling was there to fulfill my audio book needs. Delightfully funny. Interesting and introspective. All that good stuff.

    "Great, breezy listen."

    Mindy Kaling has a genuineness and charming quality that makes you leave the book wishing you were pals and feeling that if you were, she'd be the best kind.

    The book is charming and sweet, though a little light. She throws in some backstory on her rise and behind the scenes anecdotes, but they don't dominate the book. It's on the shorter side of an audiobook, so it felt more like fun, quippy conversation.

    She's a great narrator. (it is about her, after all). If you liked Bossypants, then you'll enjoy this too.

    "Best Biography I've Listened to in a Long Time!!"

    Mindy is hysterical and I love her stories! Her stories are so relate-able and filled with humor. I love the way she views things. I am so happy I got this book.

    Story
    "Mindy Kaling is kind of funny"
    Would you try another book from Mindy Kaling and/or Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ?

    I ordered this audio mostly because my boyfriend is a huge office fan and always refers to Mindy as a "funny broad." Well I agree, she's kind of funny. She's also kind of conceited, kind of annoying, and kind of boring. Every autobiography requires some self-deprication, and Mindy provides plenty. However, rather than own her growing pains, Mindy ends every unfortunate tale with a flip of her hair, and a "that's me and I love me and I'm awesome." That makes the book much less fun for readers/listeners. Her story is basically just about how she was a spoiled, rich girl who wanted to be a comedian and basically was persistent enough to make this happen. I spent most of the book wishing that I could be as self-delusional as her so that I maybe I could have forced my way into success as well. I did like that she narrated her own book, but the random interjections of the co-narrator, were awkward and too infrequent to make them go with the book's flow.

    "Mindy Kaling is my hero"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the printed edition, but I would say that the audiobook is GOLD! There is one part where she lists pictures that you can't get in the audiobook, so then the print edition could come in handy. BUT the way she reads it is hilarious and makes it so much funnier.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mindy Kaling's literary and actual voice come together so well. It is absolutely hilarious and you feel like she is your best friend while listening.


    What about Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performance did you like?

    She is hilarious. She wrote the words and delivers them flawlessly and hilariously.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it. It totally lived up to all the hype my best friend gave it.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing about Mindy's childhood and her early career.


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I have to say that I love her voice. It's very friendly, happy and so distinctive that I can still hear her narration, even after finishing the book.
